Topic Background

The Cash Management services have been around for over forty years. In recent years, the name was changed to Treasury Management. However, both terms are used interchangeably in the banking industry. Cash Management services and products include all the banking services financial institutions offer to business clients to help them handle their cash on a daily basis. With increased new technology-based products come increased risk for both the financial institutions and the business clients who use the products. Therefore, it is crucial for both institutions and business clients to get educated on which Cash Management products are available, what their risks are, and how they can be used to maximize the management of the business’ daily cash to improve profits.
